Sharing the details of this 21 day healthy habits challenge. We start on January 8th and details to join are here!

Hi friends! How are you? I hope you’re having a wonderful week and that those of you who were celebrating Christmas had a beautiful holiday. We had an amazing holiday here, and I’ll definitely share a recap in this week’s Friday Faves.

For now, let’s talk about a little healthy habits reset.

I’m not sure if you’re feeling the same way, but I’m definitely ready to get back in my routine and start 2024 feeling energized and amazing. It’s been a bit of a flood of alcohol and sweets around here, and while it was 1000% worth my while I enjoyed every second, I’m looking forward to getting back to the habits that make me feel my best.

I figured we could do a little 21 day challenge, and I’d love to have you join in!

When I talk to friends, clients, and potential clients, they typically fall into two categories:

– Those who are overwhelmed and not sure where to get started to accomplish their goals

– Those who know what to do, but are unsure of how to make it work in their real life. They start off too strong, are doing things they don’t even necessarily like, and when they can’t stick with it, they give up, or move onto the next new thing.

21 days of healthy habits

Here’s how the 21 day challenge will work:

We’re focusing on building foundational habits that you can maintain for the long haul. We’re creating the anchor habits that will help you improve body composition, sleep, mood, mindset, overall health, and performance. You can get the results you’re waiting for, without fighting your body, and while keeping your hormones and nervous system happy. 🙂

The party starts January 8th with an optional 7 or 14 day functional medicine detox. (If you’d just like to do the detox, my tracking link is here and you can use the code FITNESSISTA10 for 10% off!) I’d order yours ASAP if you know you’re going to do this. Sometimes shipping is very fast, other times, it takes a little while. I’ll be doing the 14-day version! This detox is completely optional and Read more

Hi friends! Happy holly jolly weekend to ya. What are you up to? We are baking cookies, cleaning, and getting the last bit of holiday to-dos completed. I’m also putting together something fun for January; I’ll have it up here on the blog next week.

We had a loss in our family this week, so Christmas is going to look a bit different from our usual routine. I’m definitely looking forward to mass with the fam, spending time together, and watching the kids open their gifts. I may share more later, but my heart is hurting right now.

A roundup of the week + some faves:

A trip to the Fairmont Princess in Scottsdale. This has become a yearly tradition, and it’s something we all look forward to. They turn the resort into a winter wonderland, with tons of holiday light displays, Santa, ice skating, s’more pits, and rides. The kids always have a blast. This year, we went with a group fo friends and it was even more fun!

Sakara January Reset details

Sharing the details about the Sakara January reset and what to expect. 

Hi friends! How’s the week going for you? I’m definitely feeling the pressure of the last-minute scramble. I got a lot finished early this year, but still find myself with the tiny things left on the to-do list. I’m really trying to get through everything over the next couple of days so I can lower the stress level a bit for Christmas.

If you’re feeling like me, and already looking forward to January, I thought I’d share the details of the Sakara reset if you’d like to join in.

There are a LOT of resets/detoxes/cleanses floating around this time year, and this is one of my very favorites. I’ve had a taste of their reset programs multiple times, and am really looking forward to nourishing Sakara eats, especially after the holidays and a Disneyland trip!

I’ll be sharing more in an upcoming post with my wellness/healing plan, but here’s a bit of what I’m doing as we head into the new year:

Sakara reset, followed by a 14-day Dr. Cabral detox to open up liver pathways, straight into the CBO protocol

– I’ll do a full post on the CBO protocol, but in a nutshell, when I started to do some digging and functional testing with my eye issues and allergies, I learned that as expected, my gut health is completely out of whack. I have major candida, yeast, and bacterial overgrowth, which could be contributing to my inflammation and allergies.

With these results, for a client, I would recommend a detox to open up liver pathways (along with pre-protocol support), into the CBO protocol. This protocol is designed to kill the *bad* bacteria in the gut, rebuild the beneficial bacteria, and heal/seal the gut wall. It’s 12 weeks, and I knew there was NO way I was going to attempt it over the holidays and the avalanche of family birthdays. I figured I’d wait until January, when I could really commit to the eating plan and healing. I’ll definitely share more about the entire process.

As far as Sakara goes, this is a treat I order for myself each month. It’s packed with nourishing, organic eats that I didn’t have to cook, and the meals are always beautiful, filling, and vibrant. Of course, they’re doing a little something special for the new year!
